Adjunct Professor; ETH Zurich; Zurich, Switzerland
Stefanie D. Krämer is Adjunct Professor for Biopharmacy at the ETH Zurich (Switzerland). She studied Pharmaceutical Sciences at the ETH Zurich and after some practice as a pharmacist in a public pharmacy got her Ph.D. in natural sciences at the ETH. She strengthened her expertise in physico-chemical compound characterization and blood-brain barrier models during post-doctoral stays at Sanofi Recherche in Montpellier (F) and King’s College in London (UK). Back at the ETH, she habilitated in 2007 in Biopharmacy (Drug Interactions with Lipid Bilayers and P glycoprotein) and is since 2009 involved in Radiopharmacology/Preclinical PET of Radiopharmaceutical Sciences at the ETH. Main research interests of Stefanie Krämer are kinetics of drug-lipid bilayer and transporter-mediated permeation, characterization of ADME (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion) properties of drugs and PET tracers, preclinical PET, in particular PET kinetic modeling and imaging of inflammatory processes. She teaches Biopharmacy/Pharmacokinetics (lecture and practical) and Biotransformation of Drugs and Xenobiotics (lecture) at the ETH. She co-authored the two-volume text book The Biochemistry of Drug Metabolism (Wiley) and has published more than 80 research papers. She wrote the Java applications PharmaCalc v02 and PharmaCalcCL to simulate plasma-concentration time curves (available on www.biopharmacy.ethz.ch).
